Spotted (myself!) around the Web…

A mother in Israel presents Easy and Inspiring Purim Craft Ideas – exactly what I need for a blah wintry month that, even though it’s late, STILL doesn’t feel like Purim.

And then there’s another one I’d never even heard of – and still they picked me! 

I don’t love math nearly as much as I pretend I do when I’m teaching it or blogging about it or trying to enthuse my kids. 

I just believe – ever since an eye-opening university-level Mathematics in Perspective course – that math is taught VERY badly, bumbled and fumbled and as a result we have this societal fear of what is, essentially, a great big GAME.

Apparently, the folk(s?) at the blog Let’s Play Math agree, and they included my Cuisenaire Rods lesson on money math in their Math Teachers at Play round-up this (month? week?).  Never heard of them before, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be a huge fan in future…!

  1. Yep, I certainly agree! In fact, I like the way you said it so much that I'm quoting you today.

    The Math Teachers at Play carnival happens monthly (third Fridays), and we try to get a nice mix of playful ideas from teachers, homeschoolers, unschoolers, or anyone else who is blogging about school-level math.

It's Heart Month: 3 days left to save lives!

Dear Friends & Family: Hi, everybody! Sorry I can’t stop by in person... you're a bit out of my area.  :-) We’re out walking up and down on our street on this beautiful afternoon to raise money for Heart & Stroke.  This cause is important to me (I won't say it's close to my heart , because that would be tacky!).  I hope you'll join me by donating online. Growing up, I watched as every single one of my grandparents' lives were shortened by heart disease and strokes, and my father had a defibrillator that saved his life on more than one occasion.  Heart disease and stroke kill 1 in 3 Canadians and are the #1 killer of women. Please click this link to be redirected to my main page at the Heart & Stroke website: http://tinyurl.com/AtlasHeart Thus ends my personal appeal.  Official information follows.  :-))) ----- Heart disease and stroke is the #1 killer of women - taking more women's lives than all forms of cancer combined. But no one is immune. Th
